    In this delightful, acclaimed bestseller, one of the world’s leading cognitive scientists tackles the workings of the human mind. What makes us rational—and why are we so often irrational? How do we see in three dimensions? What makes us happy, afraid, angry, disgusted, or sexually aroused? Why do we fall in love? And how do we grapple with the imponderables of morality, religion, and consciousness?

    David says: "Excellent, but a difficult listen."
    "Why did he bother?"

    What disappointed you about How the Mind Works?

    More than 1/2 way through, and still didn't have any idea where the book was going.


    What was most disappointing about Steven Pinker’s story?

    No point was being made. Just a string of thoughts. Kind of like Kurt Vonnegot's


    Have you listened to any of Mel Foster’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. He did an excellent job.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    TEEEEDEEEEUUUUUUM.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe, if I could have held out longer, I'd have seen a point to it. But, life is way too short. On to the next book. (By the way, I only very rarely give up on a book.)
